Medical Sciences | Human Tissue Biology (4 cr.)
A464 | ALL | Mescher


This course will provide undergraduates with an in-depth understanding
of the biology of human tissues and organs at the cellular and
molecular level.  Emphasis will be on the normal structural and
functinal relationships of adult tissues, but will include certain
aspects of embryonic tissue formation and medically important tissue
abnormalities.  After discussing the molecular basis of fundamental
types of tissues, we will consider each of the organ systems,
inclduing the nervous system, immune system, endocrine system and
reproductive systems.  Developmental aspects of certain specialized
tissues such as bone, teeth, and blood cells will be covered in
greater detail.
